Former England batsman hospitalized after heart attack

Former England batter Rob Key is reportedly hospitalized after having suffered a “mini stroke” over the weekend.

Key revealed he needed hospital treatment when the stroke occurred at the weekend.

Alongside an Instagram selfie, the 41-year-old captioned:

“Long weekend. Turns out I’ve had a mini stroke. Thanks to everyone at the Kent and Canterbury hospital especially Charlie And dr baht. Now got to eat food with no flavour and take pills #triffic.” said Key, who is now recovering.

Key played in 15 Tests for England and made five one-day international (ODI) appearances, as well as playing a solitary T20I for his country.

His best moment in an England shirt came in the form of a majistic double hundred (221) against the West Indies in July 2004, the only time he would go past three figures in an international game.

Key scored nearly 20,000 first-class runs between 1998 and 2015 in a staggering county career with Kent, leading them for nine seasons across two spells, before joining the Sky Sports’ cricket coverage team.
